Nonini says he’ll be back next year with private school tax credits bill

Coeur d’Alene Sen. Bob Nonini says he’ll be back next year with his legislation to grant $10 million a year in tax credits for donations to scholarships to private schools, which Nonini pitched unsuccessfully this year as a way to save the state millions by getting thousands of Idaho students to switch from public to private schools. Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News reports that Nonini made that announcement  in a discussion with the Heritage Foundation; you can read Richert’s full post here.

“I plan to continue the push for tax credits for donations to organizations that grant scholarships to qualifying families,” Nonini the foundation, in a Heritage Foundation article published by the Chicago-based Heartland Institute. “The legislation made substantial progress this year. I will in the interim now be visiting with senators from the tax committee that did not support the legislation to attempt to address their concerns.”
